Faith

I only come here because they can’t go alone.

 

Still, I dress nicely and sit quietly.

If I can manage, I find a seat towards the back where

I can watch them but stay uninvolved.

 

You are all so nice and friendly, so I try not to say too much.

I don’t want to have to admit the truth,

That I’m not one of you.

 

I don’t want to have that conversation,

Because you’ll never convince me

And it will just make things awkward.

 

But it’s been a few months now and

In spite of myself I know all the words to the songs.

I don’t know many of your names but if I’m not careful I will get to know you,

And then what will I do?

 

I like you all too much to have to tell you

You’re wrong.
